Part of Spectora Advanced, Pay Splits allows you to set up rules for how much each inspector gets paid for each service. A simple report can be ran anytime so you know how much to pay out every payroll.

Enable Pay Splits

Once you've activated Spectora Advanced, pop into Settings->Advanced Tools and enable Pay Splits:

Pay Split Manager

Get to the Pay Split Manager page from the top of Settings or Settings->Advanced->Pay Splits:

Overall Default

The first step in Pay Splits is setting an "Overall Default". This is the base percentage of revenue you pay out to each inspector for any service that you don't specify additional rules. This can be a percentage (with optional pre-split deduction) or a flat amount.

If you always pay out the same percentage to each inspector for everything, set this and you're done!

Per-Service Overrides

Below, you'll see "Per-Service Overrides". These allow you to specify additional rules for each service or add-on. These would take precedence over the "Overall Default". For example, here you see that everything will use the Overall Default except for Radon, which instead pays a flat $100 to the employee:

If you wish to remove this rule and use the Overall Default, just hit "Revert to default."

Per-Inspector Overrides

Often you have inspectors that make more than others due to seniority or skill. You can set up their pay splits in the "Per-Inspector Overrides" section. These are the most specific and override the Overall Default and Per-Service Overrides. For example, here you'll see that this particular inspector makes a higher percentage for these services:

"Revert to default" will remove the per-inspector override and default to the Service Override (if set) or the Overall Default otherwise.


Team members with the "Company Admin" privilege (set in Team page) will be able to see a new box on each inspection:

Hitting "Reset" will re-run the calculations based on the services present. After making any manual changes, be sure to hit "Save"!

Team Inspections

When multiple inspectors are assigned to an inspection or its Inspection Events, we don't automatically assume everyone participated in every service performed. We default the first inspector to receive all of the pay and give you an "Alert" to manually adjust the pay splits for that inspection:

We've built a useful tool to help you quickly assign the services on an inspection to the inspectors that performed the inspection:

This tools displays all the charges and/or services on the inspection and allows you to drag-and-drop each inspector into whatever they performed:

Note that an inspector can be assigned to multiple services and any service can have multiple inspectors. Each assignment of a service uses that inspector's pay split rules, and when multiple inspectors are associated with a service their amount is divided by the number of inspectors assigned to that service.

Payroll Reports

We'll soon be building a "Reports" area, but in the meantime click "Pay Report" from your "Pay Split Manager":

Here you can select any date range to show how much each inspector is owed:

(The default is the previous calendar month.)


We hope our Pay Split tools help you pay your team more efficiently!
